Google "Hanging Out" with Callison

Mrs. Zirlott's fifth grade class had the opportunity to share what they were thankful for with Mr. Reye's fifth graders from Callison Elementary here in Round Rock ISD. 

Instructional Technology Specialists Linda Nichols and Anita Oliver used their Google Accounts to set up the "Google Hangout" in the Library, and students at Teravista were able to have a video communication with students at Callison Elementary.

Each class took turns sharing and students, and both classes enjoyed seeing and hearing one another. One student who transferred from Callison to Teravista was able to visit her former classmates.

With this experience, the teachers are planning to use this technology for other classroom uses, such as book shares and showing products.
